List Of Top 14 Snapdragon 865 Phones To Buy In 2020
Snapdragon 865 Soc is the best Android chipset currently, so, everyone wants to own phones with Snapdragon 865. The Snapdragon 865 SoC was first announced at Qualcomm's annual summit in Maui, Hawaii. This exclusive 5G chipset is the successor to Snapdragon 855 and 855+ and is now available in several powerful flagship phones from 2020 in India and abroad (the best Snapdragon 865 phones you can buy).

The 5G modem is discrete, and Qualcomm will sell both the chipset and the second generation X55 Modem-RF as a package. This also makes the Snapdragon 865 phones much more expensive than last year's Snapdragon 855 phones.

Snapdragon 865 Features and Attractions

Here are some reasons why you should be happy with the Snapdragon 865?

Pros of SnapDragon 865:

  • Snapdragon 865 upgrades raw and the performance cores to the new Cortex-A77-based architecture and promises a 25% performance improvement along with a 25% energy efficiency improvement.
  • The nutritional cores remain the same. The L3 cache has been doubled for improved performance and better energy efficiency (while processing light tasks).
  • Qualcomm claims improvements in memory subsystems. The SD 865 also has support for LPDDR5 RAM, which will be released on flagship phones next year.
  • Snapdragon 865 will also receive support for Dolby Vision and HGL format.
  • The new chipset supports a screen refresh rate of up to 144Hz.
  • SD 865 shows a remarkable improvement in camera capabilities. There is now support for sensors up to 200MP, 8K230fps, and the time limit for 720 @ 960fps slow-motion recording has been removed (so it would be easier to record slow-motion footage).
  • AI capabilities will be significantly increased from 7 TOPs to 15 TOPs.
  • Adreno 650 GPU sees a 25% improvement in graphics performance over the Adreno 640. Energy efficiency improves by 35%
  • Snapdragon 865 is also one of the first chipsets to support the Google IdentityCredential API, which will be part of Android 11's future.
  • According to AndroidPolice, the SD865 supports the Google Mainline project, which means driver updates reach the device through the Play Store rather than Over-the-Air.

Cons of SnapDragon 865:

  • Qualcomm is not modifying ARM's core architecture because it has generated an insufficient return on investment.
  • Qualcomm uses TSMC's 7NP process to create Snapdragon 855, which is not as advanced as the new EUV (7+) process used on the Kirin 990 5G and Exynos 990.
  • The SD 865 does not have a built-in 5G modem, but Qualcomm still supports better energy efficiency when using 4G networks compared to the SD 855.
